the most famous literary men of his age He also was one of the most prolific He turned out more than 70 novels and historical works which have been translated into every major language of the world

Mr Britling Sees It Through Tony Bungay and Kipps The bold imagination of Wells plus his scientific knowledge con jured up visions of interplanetary affairs and marvels to come They were set down for
